It might be tough to find the acrylic enamel in a can. I think most vendors sell lacquer for the interior.

Welcome. If you don't mind me saying (doing it anyway-LOL) enamel will fill the grain on the door. Most all of the vendors sell the correct charcoal black which is a dead on match for the original. The metal should be taken to bare metal,lightly sanded, followed with a thin coat of lacquer primer, and then a few light coats of the black. If done properly, it will last for years and look original. Prior to sanding or removing the paint on the doors, etc, it should be washed with a detergent to kill smoke residue, oily film, stc. IN doing an interior, it is best do a door at a time, and the dash, etc. Have found that painting the lacquer with a couple coats, and then using a hair dryer to lightly fan the area will faciilitate drying and minimize blushing. The lacquer, properly applied, will last as long as enamiel, look better, and be easier to control. Practicing on a scrap of metal, etc. will give you the feel. Good directions are on the can. Hope this helps. It's really a pretty simple job. A tip: use 3-M masking tape, mask well and do in a well ventilated area. Repeat: never apply lacquer over bare metal= a thin coat of primer first.

Welcome to mustangsandmore!

May I add one thing to Mellows suggestions.
Use a small brass brush to "open up" the grain then do the washing..this will get the harden residue out of the grain and the soft brass brush will not damage the grain.
